Trump’s Government: The Continuous Revolving Door

I thought the following headline as a jest, but it’s starting to become clear that a job in Trump’s government is essentially a contracting job with loads of responsibility, little pay and no respect. Robert S. Mueller, a former FBI director appointed by The Justice Department to oversee an investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and that country where Putin is from is now, according to a friend of Trump’s, the next on Trump’s list to be fired. To me it’s obvious why: he’s going to do his job, much like Comey and Trump doesn’t want people who can do their job – especially if it involves a detailed investigation into the campaign that brought you here in the first place.

How To Educate Donald Trump

Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement because he felt that it wasn’t benefitting America, but other countries. He overlooked obviously the part about our climate changing and, without the U.S. involvement in the agreement, the climate will get worse. Here are some ways that, in general, we can educate Donald Trump.

An Open Letter To Joseline Hernandez

I’m taking a break from politics to address a particular reality star named Joseline Hernandez. Hernandez, part of a three way car crash that features on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, wants to put producer/creator Mona Scott Young on blast for the way that she has treated the cast over the years on Oprah’s show. The following of what I am going to write is to give her a sense of reality that she has never part of as long while in the “Reality TV” bubble.

Mr. President: Stop Hiding And Start Listening

Donald Trump, get over yourself. You wanna be better than Obama, start actually acting like you care about the country and not the version currently played out in the most depression editions of Call Of Duty. In other words, wake the f*** up.

Kathy Griffin’s Trump Video: I Got Nothing

(I was going to be the original photo up that came from the video, but given that this is such a non-controversy, I decided a pancake was better instead)

In the age before the Internet, finding a shocking video of someone being beheaded would have been something sold or watched in the dark corners of the world. Now such rare exclusivity is gone and beheading videos can pop up as often as Donald Trump tweets. The effect of such quantity and availability means that voices involved are varied; some are traditionally outraged, some perhaps think it’s promo for another season of American Horror Story and some would probably see it as an outtake from a really cheesy B-movie intended to send up horror films.

Trump Voters, Face It: America Was Better When Obama Was President

In the spirit of Trump voters and his administration disavowing facts, I will disavow them when talking about Obama in this post. Deal with it.

Republicans Don’t Grasp That Violence Against The Media Doesn’t Work

This is Greg Gianforte, a 56-year-old millionaire who owns CRM tech company RightNow Technologies and is on the eve of possibly winning a congressional seat in Montana. Yesterday, he body-slammed Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs for asking questions regarding a Congressional Budget Office report on the Trumpcare bill which gives an unfavorable review of it. For public figures, physically assaulting and threatening the media only makes them go harder. If it’s too hot in the kitchen, you can always work at McDonalds.

Donald Trump – What Else Is There Left To Say About This Man?

I apologize for featuring this same photo of Donald Trump that I used in another blog post. The fact of the matter is that there are so many sides of Trump that you can never tell which of them fit his real character. One side I wish he’d do away with is the part of himself that believes he lives in an alternate reality where he is considered a hero and everyone else is the villain.

How Do You Not Read A Bill?

There’s a famous scene in Seven where Morgan Freeman walks into a library and the cops, upstairs playing cards, mock him. As he notes, and I’m paraphrasing, is that in the halls of knowledge, a cop’s only pleasure in this moment is playing cards. I can attest to not being the most avid reader and being almost more like Mills, played by Brad Pitt, where I’m only interested in the cliff notes version. Reading is important, perhaps even more important for those in power as someone who is in government. Or, as we keep finding out with this healthcare bill, maybe not.
